Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command. Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray. Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.

We're just busy doing things and going to beta and stuff

Posted by on

So, there have been a few months of peace and quiet here. Sorry about that. But fear not, progress has been happening behind the scenes, and I am happy to announce that we're on the verge of starting beta testing of the first batch of War in Heaven R2 missions. It has taken us a bit longer than we anticipated, due to Battuta, Axem and Darius going a bit mad with new mission concepts. They're ambitious, but (we hope!) not rubbish, so we'll see what our beta testers have to say about it.

That being said, there are a few goodies we can show you. First up, our promo picture of the new Narayana:

Second, here's a new piece of music, courtesy of Darius. Enjoy.


Until the next time, this is The E. Have a nice, non-exploding day.

Note, it's just the first batch of missions that goes into testing. Basically, the third act of WiH (The first two acts being in WiH R1) is almost done, and we want to get that out to our testers as soon as we can. There are two more acts after that that need to be done.

Good to hear, loved Age of aquarius and war in heaven pt. 1. Maybe AoA a bit more because of the voice-over and the special story. Anyway, take your time :-)

Just a note: the music track is a remix of a song that will be appearing in the Part 2 soundtrack.

War in Heaven is one of THE best told stories in video game form ever.
It's not only way better than Age of Aquarius but it outclasses pretty much every flight sim game out there. (Including my own work for FS2)
